S ~ Sun Steps













Sun Steps~

Sunshine steps on parched fields
with heavy heel,
denied nourishing droplets
of cloud-kissed rain,
the surface becomes hard,
impenetrable,
unyielding.

The earth, much like the
human heart,
craves the moisture of love
to replenish,
to soften,
to nurture the soil.

    1. Ahhhhh that's right, I knew you were the squish bandit in something other than this one... LOL, poor mom, you are now the "heavy heel" of the law on bugs. :-)

      I'm glad you enjoy this one, it's actually one that makes me smile when I read it, so I must like it too. Sometimes the words fly off my fingertips so quickly that it's not until the fourth or fifth read that I even know if I like it or not. Odd hmmm?

      Thanks for coming by Sandra. Do you know what kind of caterpillar would be purple with black on it? I have never seen such a critter, and it sounds fascinating.

    1. Thank you Amy, I like it when they are smooth like that. The connection between the earth, or Universe and us is most often apparent in relation to emotion.

  7. I do like this one, BUT it is the sun that keeps us and the earth warm so that when the moisture is added, there is a good environment for growth. My SUN is not meant to be all, just a most important part. ♥
